    I have a surface 32-byt, I try to download Skype, google chrome, and even update it but the same pop up comes up "this app can't run on your pc, to find apps for this pc open the windows store." I think I tried fixing the account type, but it hasn't worked. if anyone has any answers to my problem id really appreciate it.
